CALIFORNIA, PA. (September 11, 2015) – Undefeated super featherweight Omar “Super O” Douglas (14-0,11 KOs) takes on Puerto Rico’s Braulio Santos (12-3, 10 KOs) in the televised opener of Premier Boxing Champions (PBC) TOE-TO-TOE TUESDAYS on FS1 and FOX Deportes Tuesday, September 15 from the Convocation Center at California State University of Pennsylvania in California, Pa.
This bout replaces the originally scheduled opening clash between Thomas Williams (18-1, 12 KOs) and Umberto Savigne (12-2, 9 KOs), after Savigne was forced to withdraw from the fight due to an injury sustained during training.

The local flavor continues with 31-year-old Pittsburgh heavyweight Jason “Ironman” Bergman (24-11-2, 16 KOs) in a six-round bout plus undefeated 18-year-old Milton “El Santo” Santiago (11-0, 3 KOs) out of Philadelphia facing Mexico’s Alvaro Ortiz (7-3, 5 KOs)in six rounds of super lightweight action and 21-yearold Philadelphia born Stephen Fulton (6-0, 3 KOs) facing Samuel Rodriguez (3-0, 3 KOs) from the Bronx in a six-round super bantamweight bout.
Rounding out the action is 22-year-old Stephan Shaw (4-0, 3 KOs) out of St. Louis squaring off against 34- year-old Randy Easton (3-7-1, 3 KOs) of Sanbury, PA, in four rounds of heavyweight action and 24-year-old Pittsburgh-native Amonte Eberhardt (2-0, 1 KO) in a four-round welterweight bout.
Unbeaten 24-year-old Douglas of Wilmington, DE, is ready to transition from prospect to contender. While an adept technical boxer, the powerful Douglas always seeks to end bouts early, with five of his 11 knockouts coming in the very first round. His most recent victory came by first round stoppage over Daniel Attah in April. He will be opposed by 25-year-old Santos out of Carolina, Puerto Rico.
An exciting fighter representing Pittsburgh, Meza Clay is looking to get back to the form that saw him reel off eight-straight wins between 2010 and 2014. The 34-year-old has picked up victories over Alan Herrera, Eric Aiken and Emmanuel Lucero over a career that spans back to 2002.
